Beyond Here Lies Nothin’
No…this isn’t an April Fool’s joke…you’re actually seeing a Bob Dylan song on the Song of the Day List! ‘Together Through Life’ will be Bob Dylan’s forty-sixth album since his storied career began in 1962, and will be his first studio album since Modern Times was released in 2006 and ‘cuz all the kids are doin’ it these days, he’s offering the first single, ‘Beyond Here Lies Nothin’, as a free download. Now, it might be because I just saw Cadillac Records last weekend and I’m feelin’ the Blues, but to me it sounds like Mr. Zimmerman must have been listening to a few Chess Records from the fifties before he laid down this track…the bluesey guitar licks, the squeeze-box accordion, the bone-dry trumpet crying out in the background, all coming together and wrapping around Bobby’s gutteral growl…..it’s almost like he’s sending out a love letter to Muddy Waters! The album drops April 28th and you can learn more by visiting his Website or head on over to MySpace to stream a few more songs.
